Naoto Kan made his remarks at the end of the G8 summit. He says Japan now plans to develop its renewable energy sector to provide a fifth of the country's power output by the 2020s. But he gave few specifics apart from saying a switch in energy consumption patterns is vital.

Naoto Kan, Japanese PM, said, "We need to create a new style of life in which a comfortable life can be enjoyed even using limited amounts of energy, so we have to create a new culture of energy consumption and we think it is important that we engage the people in this endeavor."
